Are we looking for a total play in Saturday’s game two between Kansas City and Cleveland? It’s simply way too early in the season to lay -255 on any team, let alone an Indians team that won just 2-0 on Friday.
Then again, the Royals look like they may be calling 2020 a ‘throwaway season.’ Six batters struck out at least twice in the opener and 9 players had at least one K.
Kansas City Royals
KC ran into a buzzsaw by the name of Shane Bieber on Friday night. The Cleveland pitcher ended up striking out 14 batters while allowing just 4 hits. The bright spot is that Bieber went just 6IP so the Indians did use some bullpen.
How much of a drop-off is it between Bieber and Clevinger for the Royals offense? KC does actually have a cumulative .270 average vs. the Indians pitcher with Alex Gordon and Jorge Soler both above .300.
The big reason Kansas City is at +205 for this game is because of the unknown of Brady Singer making his MLB debut. He is KC’s #2 prospect however.
Cleveland did scratch out just enough offense on Friday night getting the 2 runs they needed in the 5th. The Indians had just 5 hits compared to KC’s 4 so is that a sign of rust or something more?
No Indians batters have ever faced the rookie Singer so Saturday could be another low scoring affair. That could especially be true as Francisco Lindor and Carlos Santana have started the year a combined 0-7.
Can Mike Clevinger shut down the KC offense for a 2nd straight night. He’s got a tough act to follow but was 13-4 last year with a career best 2.71 ERA. That includes 3-0 with a 0.96 ERA vs. Kansas City.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Royals are 6-16 last 22 Saturday games
- Over is 9-4 in Royals last 13 road games
- Over is 7-2 in Indians last 9 games
- Royals are 21-45 in last 66 head to head games
Free Kansas City Royals vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
Clevinger absolutely dominated the Royals last season and with the way Kansas City hit the ball (or didn’t) on Friday it would be a surprise if the Royals scored 1 run against the starter.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 9
The Cleveland offense could struggle vs. the unknown of the rookie Singer as well.
